Thanks for your reply. I should point out that the picture was taken on the night of the injury. I noticed that hardly any posts in the 'injury/rehab' section get answered because not many people visit it unless they are looking for help for their own injury. Therefore I chose the thread title 'should my finger look like this?' to draw some interest.
I had x-rays taken 6 weeks after the break and the Doctor said it had 'knitted well'. I wasn't able to get much more out of him. I did see a physiotherapist who helped with providing exercises to strengthen the muscle in my finger which had weakened during the knitting period. I am still doing them a year later because this finger still feels weak. I asked the phsyiotherapist whether the bone would be weaker now and easier to break but she just said it depends on too many things for her to give me an answer.
I would like to see a hand specialist but as the bone is knitted I would really just be seeing him/her to ask a few questions regarding how strong the bone is now and whether it is likely to break easily. A lot of money to spend to get a few questions answered but I suppose they're the best ones to ask. Thanks.
